Dove Advanced Care Deodorant with Nutrium Moisture Review

I definitely appreciate staying cool under pressure! With a demanding schedule, it can be hard to pamper yourself, too. What's a working girl to do in these hard times?

That being said, I was delighted to receive a complimentary sample of  Dove Advanced Care Deodorant with Nutrium Moisture from Influenster in the RaiseYourArms VoxBox. I'm a fan of the Dove brand, and was more than willing to test out their new line of deodorant. 
I have to admit that Dove was really fighting an uphill battle with me ... as I consider myself QUITE a sweater. I swear that my body temp is several degrees higher than normal people, and it can cause some pretty embarrassing pit problems.

What Is Dove Advanced Care Deodorant with Nutrium Moisture?
This deodorant is "the best care ever for the armpit." It is made with ingredients that are known to moistureize and nourish the skin, thus they named this new formula NutriumMoisture. This anti-perspirant deodorant is the only one in existence that uses this formula.

Why Use Dove Advanced Care Deodorant?
  • Armpit skin requires the same care and attention given to the rest of a woman's skin
  • 36% of what you remove when shaving is skin
  • As a result of the damage done by shaving, armpit skin loses 50% more moisture, which can lead to dryness and irritation
  • The NEW Dove Advanced Care deodorant provides softer, smoother armpit skin in just 3 days

My Review
First, this product smells great; it's light and feminine. The smell of the deodorant is a huge part of the product buying decision for me, and Dove has definitely passed the sniff test!
Applying the deodorant feels silky and smooth ... it did not go on chunky or streaky, either. I didn't notice it rubbing off on any fabrics, but I am always careful to avoid the dreaded white streaks when dressing in the morning.
As far as protection goes, I would say this deodorant is on par with Secret or Degree. I wasn't blown away by wetness protection, but I wasn't disappointed either. I would not say that it gave me 48-hour wetness protection. However, I do think that it provided excellent odor protection that was long-lasting. 

After using this product for about a week I began to notice a subtle difference in my armpit skin. It really did look less "chalky" and more hydrated. NutriumMoisture is real, and it works!

Dr. Scholl's® For Her Cozy Cushions Review

My feet are extra toasty thanks to my new cozy cushions!
I definitely appreciate the softer things in life. I’ve never been known to choose fashion over function!

That being said, I was thrilled to receive a complimentary pair of Dr. Scholl's® For Her Cozy Cushions from Influenster in the RoseVoxBox. These particular inserts have hopped into my cart several times but never made it through the checkout lane, for one reason or another.

What Are Dr. Scholl's® For Her Cozy Cushions?
They are inserts designed for women to ensure comfort (while rocking your favorite footware). Each insert has a warm, fuzzy layer that touches your foot and a rubber layer that touches the sole of your boot or shoe. The cushions are designed to fit all sizes of feet; simply trim them to meet your needs!

Cozy Cushion Features
  • Alleged all day comfort, support, and added warmth 
  • Two plush layers for extra cushioning comfort
  • Multi-layer design insulates against cold and dampness
  • Helps keep feet dry by absorbing perspiration
  • Offers superior support on hard surfaces
  • Provides support to a variety of boots and shoes, including rain boots, winter boots, casual boots and shoes, and dress boots
  • Satisfaction guarantee

My Review
I love how fuzzy my Dr. Scholl's® For Her Cozy Cushions are! They are seriously so soft and warm … it was hard to put them INTO my boots! The rubber sole on the insert is really heavy-duty, too. My feet definitely feel more protected from the elements.

I have giant feet so I did not cut the insert to fit my boots. I’m pleased to say that it covers my entire foot but my toes to touch the top. It’s not exactly Dr. Scholl’s® fault though; most shoe (and insert) companies don’t even carry a size 11 shoe for women. I would have liked a little more toe wiggle room but I have no complaints about the fit.

These cushions will keep your feet toasty! Seriously! Don’t make the mistake of wearing them on a warmish day because your will feel the heat. This makes them ideal for colder climates, especially during the winter months.

The inserts do take up a bit of space inside the boot (obviously!) so be prepared to feel a little snug until you get used to it. This was definitely weird at first but now I don’t even notice the snugness.

Colgate® #SlimSoft Toothbrush Review


I was fortunate enough to receive the new SlimSoft™ Toothbrush from Colgate® complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Read on for my review.

First things first; what makes SlimSoft™ different from your current toothbrush?

SlimSoft Features
Super slim Floss-Tip bristles:
  • 17x slimmer tip bristles for a deep clean
  • 6x deeper reach along the gum line
  • 1.5x deep access between teeth
High density of bristles:
  • 35% more bristles for a thorough cleaning experience
Ergonomic and flexible design:
  • 3x higher flexibility
  • Unique curved neck and design absorb pressure when brushing
  • Comfortable rubber handle allows for a better grip
  • Slim head provides great control while brushing and better access to hard-to-reach places 

Testing, Testing
The packaging of the SlimSoft™ was a bit trickier than I would have liked it to be ... it felt like a battle to get the thing open! Once I did, though, I immediately noticed how light the toothbrush was. I never thought that my current toothbrush was heavy until I compared it to my new SlimSoft™Toothbrush. 

Once I got over how light the SlimSoft™Toothbrush was, I looked at the bristles. They really are tiny! Again, I always thought that toothbrush bristles were teeny to begin with, but the SlimSoft™ took it to the next level. My old toothbrush bristles look like straw in comparison!

My Review
So ... what does brushing with a SlimSoft™Toothbrush feel like? Honestly, it feels like you are brushing your teeth with a cloud. I have sensitive gums and the tiny bristles gave my smile a deep clean without irritating my mouth in any way. The tiny bristles really do make a difference; they easily fit inside the nooks and crannies to clean out all the gunk. It's as close to flossing I can get (without actually flossing of course). I absolutely LOVE this toothbrush! I will be buying another one when the time comes.

Toothbrushing Tips
  • Always remember to brush yoru teeth gently and in a circular motion! Your dentist will thank you, legit.
  • Use a little less toothpaste than you normally do when using SlimSoft™ -- a little goes a long way!
  • Turn off running water when you aren't using it.

Happy brushing!
